The webinar deals with the cornerstones for evaluating and selecting an appropriate weighing system: Measurement uncertainty and minimum weight. The selection of a weighing system which reliably fulfills the respective weighing accuracy requirements set by the user will be illustrated. In the framework of the calibration, it has been proven and documented that the selected weighing system fulfills the user's requirements. This is done by determining measurement uncertainty and minimum weight at the weighing equipment's installation location. Reference is made to applicable GxP, ISO and other rules. Further, management considerations are provided which help bridging the gap between sustainable quality of weighing data, risk reduction and efficiency enhancement.
